Learn how the Mayan people prepared their food in heated pit ovens that cooked the fish and other meats to steamed and moist perfection. Discover original handmade tortilla creations as our staff prepares and cook tortillas for you in the traditional Mayan style. We finish with a sample of Mexican desserts, and the sweetness continues when you take the recipes and menus home with you as souvenirs
